We are proud to announce a new service for our patients here at Kids First. With so many families traveling to places all over the world, we want to help your children travel safely.
When you contact our office about your travels, we will send you a form to fill out with details about your trip. Our nurse practitioner, Pat Lawrence will review this to see what your child will need and set up an appointment. We will discuss vaccines, safe food and water and preventing common diseases you may encounter on your travels.
If a specific vaccine is recommended other than routine childhood vaccines, we will have you pick it up from your pharmacy and bring to the office when we meet with you.
We can serve you best if you give us approximately six weeks notice of your travel, but don’t be afraid to contact us, even if you are leaving sooner!
Pat Lawrence, APN/CPNP
